Siren Whispers

Siren Song




Some days it is a struggle to put one foot in front of the other.

Engulfed by the utter exhaustion that results from putting everyone else first.

Every day.

Those whose needs and wants are of paramount importance to me

but who gladly take what I freely give

without understanding that that well will go dry

if it is never replenished.

Some days it can be a small thing that tips the balance.

Minute in importance compared to those comprising that already weighty pile.

Some days there seems to be nothing left for myself.

The silence broken

by the slow and menacing drip, drip, drip

as my energy is expended.

On yet another day.

On yet another crisis.

On someone else’s needs.

A buildup of days, weeks, months.

When my very soul cries out for something good to come my way

something positive



just for me.

A day when it is my turn

to be understood

to be supported

to be given what I need.

But today is not that day.

Today is the day I say


I have nothing to give.


*Posted a year ago it is a recurring theme. Introverted and empathic it is a constant struggle.

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.
